What is the use tax rate?

The Illinois Use Tax rate is 6.25 percent of the selling price of purchases of general merchandise, including automobiles and other items that must be titled or registered. The use tax rate is 1 percent on purchases of qualifying food, drugs, and medical appliances. These rates are identical to the state sales tax rates.

See Illinois Administrative Code, Title 86, Sections 150.105, 130.310, and 130.311.
